Have you ever felt like you don’t know what you did to deserve such good friends and family in your life? Well, that is how I feel right now as I write this. This past weekend was SO incredibly WONDER~FULL I can’t even stand it! Brett & I were surrounded by good friends all weekend, some dropping in for a brief visit and some like Michelle, Jesse & “Haley the wonder dog” who were staying with us for the weekend. I was reminded how special it is to be surrounded by people you can just be yourself with ~ even if they don’t completely appreciate your Bon Jovi, Kenny Chesney, Jimmy Buffett addiction~ ha! We had a leisurely weekend, took the boat to the beach, made yummy food, indulged in fun cocktails, listened to an eclectic mix of music, sat by our new fire pit (pictures coming soon!), gazed at the blaze of candles and outdoor twinkly lights, took a hot tub, relaxed, read, and just enjoyed each others company. What could be better?
The weekend was FULL of JOY and LAUGHTER! Two of my favorite surprises were Brett unexpectedly bringing home several bouquets of flowers which I made into little arrangements and spread all over the house. He also enlisted the help of our friend Jesse to create THE BEST fireworks display right in our own backyard! It was PERFECT!!! They were SO GOOD! I didn’t expect so many or “the real kind”! I sat by the fire, looking around me feeling overwhelmingly blessed to have such wonderful people in my life. I want to thank everyone for making the weekend such a delight!
What are your favorite moments with friends?
